What Alkaline Water and Antioxidants Do to Your Body

What Are Antioxidants?

We hear about antioxidants all the time. Most of us have got the general idea that antioxidants are good for us, but how much do you really know about these amazing molecules?

What are antioxidants and why do we need them in order to be healthy?

The basic definition is that antioxidants are molecules that prevent other molecules from oxidizing. They inhibit the process of oxidization – the chemical reaction that triggers the formation of free radicals.

These molecules – the harmful free radicals – wreak havoc on whatever they come into contact with – such as the cell walls in your body.

Let’s jump back to oxidation, because it’s important. Oxidation is the process in which an oxidizing substance – usually oxygen – causes a chemical change in another substance.

How does this look in everyday life? Two good examples are apples and old cars!

If you cut open an apple and leave it on the plate for a few minutes, it begins to turn brown. What has happened to cause this? Quite simply, apples contain a compound called polyphenol. When oxygen comes into contact with this enzyme, the polyphenols are converted into an iron-rich compound called melanin. This process rapidly gives a cut apple that familiar brown appearance.

What about cars? Have you ever seen an old rusted-out truck sitting abandoned somewhere, its glory days long behind it? It’s the same process – oxidation. Rust is formed when oxygen reacts with iron, although it generally needs some help from water. However, ‘dry corrosion’ – when metal and oxygen react in the absence of liquid – is still a form of oxidation, but somewhat slower.

So that’s apples and cars, but what about us? What does oxidation do to your body?


Why You Need Alkaline Water

The damage caused by free radicals, and the processes and reactions that are unleashed as a result of a surfeit of free radicals and not enough antioxidants, is a kind of blueprint for many of the health problems we face today.

The human body needs the right pH balance. It’s vital for health. The ‘right’ pH is slightly alkaline 7.35 to 7.45. The problem is that our modern diet is pretty acidic. Processed foods, preserved meat, preservatives and so on form the backbone of convenience foods. All of these foods – along with alcohol, sodas and sweetened beverages – are acidifying. They cause your body to become more acidic.

Here’s the thing: an acidic environment is what you want to avoid. An alkaline environment is what you want to create. Remember that your body thrives at slight alkalinity.

One of the best ways to do that and to protect your health from this constant free radical assault is to make sure you are stocked up on foods that are high in antioxidants and drink water that is pure and overflowing with them. Is that possible?

It sure is – Tyent Alkaline Water is one of the fastest and most delicious ways to introduce an abundance of potent antioxidants into your body. Antioxidants fight free radicals and win! Here are a few antioxidant-rich foods to start enjoying every day – the good news is that they’re all delicious!

  • Dark chocolate
  • Sweet potatoes
  • Carrots
  • Collard greens
  • Asparagus
  • Kale
  • Goji berries
  • Soft fruit berries – particularly strawberries, raspberries and blueberries
  • Pecans
  • Artichokes

It’s easy to get more antioxidant-rich foods into your diet: a handful of berries in your morning oatmeal, a helping of sweet potato with your evening meal and a couple of squares of dark chocolate and a few pecans as an afternoon snack. Add a few glasses of delicious Tyent Water, and you’ll start feeling the difference in no time!

Who Is Dr. Alvin Stein?

What does the medical establishment think about Tyent Water?

“The beauty of Tyent Water is that it penetrates into the cells and hydrates the cells at the cellular level.”  -Dr. Alvin Stein

Alvin Stein is an inspiring individual. He is a renowned doctor, legendary surgeon and a pioneer who has practiced medicine for over fifty years.

In 2008, he was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award. Additionally, he is a respected authority on clinical matters concerning detoxification, nutrition, and other areas of complementary and alternative medicine. The goal of this branch of medicine? To consider the root cause of ill health and treat pain without surgery and harmful medications.

Dr. Stein stresses the importance of introducing antioxidants into the body. He also explains why and how Tyent water can play an important role in raising alkaline levels in the body, while simultaneously having a neutralizing effect on acid.

“The body works very hard to keep the blood at a slightly alkaline level of 7.365…that’s the ideal level. But the tissues are absorbing all of these oxidizing processes and becoming acidic.

We want to bring the body out of acidity and into alkalinity. When we do this, we have a healthy body where cancer can’t grow, deterioration of the body doesn’t occur and the body can detoxify more easily when it is alkaline.”

 “The hydration level of the cells is so necessary for all of the metabolic processes. The beauty of Tyent Water is that it penetrates into the cells and hydrates the cells at the cellular level.”

Antioxidants and Their Benefits

Science has established that dangerous, acidic oxidants cannot thrive in an alkaline environment. In fact, antioxidants prevent damaging free radicals from forming, while targeting and neutralizing existing free radicals.

When you eat and drink powerful fresh antioxidants every day, it’s the end of the road for free radicals having the upper hand in your body.

The combination of antioxidants and alkaline water means that you are supporting a healthier, stronger body. Antioxidants are like the proverbial knights on a white steed, fighting off free radicals. Tyent Alkaline Water delivers a slew of them in every glass, helping to increase alkalinity and decrease acidity in the body.

It’s easy to maximize the benefits of the power of two: start eating antioxidant-rich foods and switch your water for Tyent Alkaline Water!

  1. Hello, I drink your alkaline water. I am wondering: should I keep drinking alkaline water during meals? Should I change the kind of water I drink?

    1. Hi, Savannah. Thank you for trusting Tyent to help keep you healthy! Generally, we advise people to drink regular pH water (level 7 pH) with meals, then wait 30 minutes before and after meals to drink alkaline water again.

    1. Hi, Isabella. We measure the presence of hydrogen and antioxidants in ionized water using the negative oxygen reduction potential (-ORP). The lower the level, the richer the water is with antioxidants. At Tyent, our water has the optimal -ORP levels, indicating the presence of molecular hydrogen.

    1. Hi, Brigitte. Thanks for your question. Some of the essential minerals in Tyent’s hydrogen-rich alkaline water are magnesium, calcium, zinc, and potassium.

    1. Hi, Trenton. That’s amazing! Thanks for choosing Tyent for your water and health needs. Depending on the machine you have, your goal is to be able to drink alkaline level 3 or level 4 water at the end of the adjustment period. Drink the rest of your daily intake at level 1 for about two weeks and so on and so forth until your body fully adjusts to switching to healthier water. We also recommend that you consult the water ionizer guide included with your purchase for more information.

    1. Hi, Emilio. All of our water ionizers contain electrolysis chambers, which is where the purification and ionization occur. Our process of electrolysis makes our water rich with higher antioxidant levels than those of regular water. The process is made better by our premium Solid/Mesh Hybrid plates. All of Tyent’s water ionizer plates offer the durability of a solid plate, and go a step further by having electrolysis distribution holes strategically placed throughout to provide the most groundbreaking electrolysis chamber in the world!

    1. Hi, Zane. No, you won’t, since your body is able to balance and absorb the effects of drinking alkaline water. Your overall pH level increases the more alkaline water you drink, as this healthy state is something that alkaline water encourages. If the alkaline is from an outside source, your body will experience a net gain of alkalinity. You can read more about these bodily processes here.
